To the reverse a white metal oval brazed into the star to seal the back.

I think that these are all lovely. Not my area of knowledge at all but looking at the Sphinx tablets; they appear to be non-existent or blank. Is this normal?

Pixie, the battle honour Egypt does not appear on any BW glengarry badges. However it is present on some badges on dirk belt plates.
Cant explain why? All officers bonnet badges have Egypt on their Sphinxes except for the odd VB. Below an example from the 1860s.
